WHAT IS A "KEEPER?"
A "keeper” is an image that remains in the context of initially reviewing a series of “shots”
after having deleted those that are definitely not usable for reasons such as a trial lighting
out-of-focus because you moved; closed or partially-closed eyes; an
undesirable-looking mouth shape;
a tooth showing when your mouth is
otherwise closed, or; unkempt hair
that can not be
remedied and still look good.
NOT mean that it is a
“suitable for framing” image.
It may still require cropping;
color and/or exposure
correction; removal of skin
imperfections such as
a mole or
a stray hair or hairs, or any
other undesirable cosmetic artifact
Thus, it is an
image that has NOT been excluded for POSSIBLE further use
because of lack of an uncorrectable problem and
IS an image that CAN BE successfully
manipulated into becoming “ready-to-frame” quality,
or used on a
business card or electronic environment such as
a Website or
professional resume-listing site.
The usual way to select the best photograph of you from a session is to eliminate
those images with a problem.
After an increasingly-critical, second, pass there are usually
one or two images that we both agree are "outstanding." Without extra charge,
ONE of those will get
my full attention to take it from “outstanding” to “perfection.”
If appropriate, that
one that will be printed. It is a process that has
worked for me
than four-decades. I fully expect that it will also work for you.
A session that resulted in twelve “finished” images, as opposed to merely the "keepers,"
minus one, would cost
many times the price shown
on the Packages & Prices" page.
And there would be little point it: certainly, you would not present a
framed picture of you, asking them to choose their favorite
then put what they did not
choose into a drawer to be forgotten.
